The purpose of the ANDI-ADI list is to discuss Advanced Dietary Interventions for the treatment of autism and related disorders, including:
*Theories and hypotheses, modifications and variations on dietary interventions
*Co-existing issues (such as multiple food allergies, yeast, etc.)
*The use of anti-fungals, and pro-biotic foods and supplements
*Food-combining or food rotation
*Tips, ideas, and advanced support for maintaining restricted diets
*Other discussions of interest to those following dietary interventions, not typically covered on beginner lists.
This group is not reserved to the discussion of any single combination of food restrictions. Most of our members are using a gluten-free diet in combination with a diet free of dairy, soy, corn, egg, grains, nuts, rice, sugars, polysaccharides, food dyes, and/or other restrictions, depending on individual needs.
This is a group with many experienced members. If you are looking for basic answers (such as which products contain gluten) or are new to dietary interventions for autism, you are likely to find the best hands-on support and detailed advice at the following groups:
